I was in the middle of writing one of my usual Saints News posts the other day, when I stumbled upon this news story from BusinessPortal24.com. Actually, it's more of a press release from a company called Neekam.
Upon reading, my interest was piqued. With all this positive press combined with my tireless effort to bring you guys all thats out there, I had to further my exploration by going to the website in question, NewOrleansSaints365.com. At first, I was worried. Is there someone out there doing what I am doing, only better? Do I have competition?
When I arrived I found myself more and more intrigued and equally confused. What had I stumbled upon? What bizzaro world wide web was I surfing? There was too much stuff here to summarize and fit into a portion of a Saints News segment. I had to dedicate an entire post to this wonderful blog. You are going to love this!
This was one of the first posts I read:
When I first heard the news, I was like "What!". I did not know the New Orleans Saints moved to la. The first thing that came to mind when I heard this was , "Are they still going to be called the New Orleans Saints?" I know that may sound silly. But whether we like it or not, the Saints have to move. If they didn't move to Los Angeles, they had to move somewhere.
As of right now, there is no more going back to Louisiana ever since the hit of Hurricane Katrina, but there is talk of returning in the near future. And to be honest, people say it is better for the team to move to California since L.A. seems to be in a football team void right now and it would do the league some good to fill that void.
Ummm...is anyone else confused on multiple levels?
- First level: Is this a joke?
- Second level: Whether or not its a joke, is it written after the Saints moved to LA or before they moved?
- Third level: Is this person from another country?
The ultimate question, however, is this: What is so special about this blog that deems it worthy of a press release!?!? What is this Neekam company? I am so confused! I don't think I will ever get answers, so I will move on.
Okay, here is another gem from my new favorite Saints blog. This one was entitled "Updates On The New Orleans Saints To Sign Asante Sameul."
Before I begin talking about the New Orleans Saints to sign Asante Sameul-I first need to clarify that his last name is spelled S-A-M-U-E-L. When I first was introduced to this player, the first thing I thought was ,"oh my goodness-he is so fine!!" But when I saw him play, I was impressed by his speed and ball handling skills as well. To me, he is the full package.
Earlier this year, there was talk of the Saints, the Buccaneers, and the Eagles trying to sign Samuel after recognizing what a great CB he is. Eventually though, sorry to the fans, but Samuel was signed by the Philedelphia Eagles for a deal that is reportedly for 6 years and $57 million!!
I've got the whole "multiple levels" thing going on here again.
- First level: Did Borat start writing a Saints blog?
- Second level: Did anyone else notice the sexual inuendos? "ball handling skills" "full package"
- Third level: What the hell is with the spelling clarification and if they knew the correct spelling why did they incorrectly spell it in the title?
But wait, there's more. Here is another snippet from a post.
Most of the teams in the NFL have at least one super bowl appearance under there belts including the New Orleans Saints. However they have only been once!
This is too easy. I will let the lone, anonymous commenter from that post take it away.
Whoever you are Anonymous,
Before you start thinking that this was just an honest mistake, check out our blogger make the same mistake in another post.
Interestingly enough, the New Orleans stadium for the Saints has tied the record for the most hosted Super bowls. However, funnily enough, the New Orleans Saints football team, themselves, have only been to one Super bowl.
That same post also had this to say about Reggie Bush.
Bush, by the way, is one of the most impressive running backs the NFL has ever seen.
I am pretty sure that is still up in the air.
Here is a little background on on the Saints symbol, the fleur-di-lis, NewOrleansSaints365 style:
What is interesting about the New Orleans Saints symbol is that it is the actual symbol for the city of New Orleans. This symbol has been around for a long time and believe it or not, the original symbol was supposed to be something else. Why they ended up choosing this particular symbol: only they know. This football team's symbol is a signature gold and black which is similar to the symbol for the Pittsburgh Steelers, yet another nearby football team. However, the difference is, the uniforms for the Saints look like real gold as compared to the yellowish coloring of the Steelers' uniforms.
We look nothing like the Steelers. And Pittsburgh is nearby? I think you're thinking of Baton Rouge. Understandable mistake.
Let's move on, shall we? Here we have some fashion advice about how to accessorize with your vintage Saints throwback t-shirt.
They come in all sorts of sizes and can be dressed down or dressed up. Females can wear the ladies tee with nice jeans and nice boots while they are on the arms of their beau/fellow Saints fan who is wearing a men's tee with nice jeans and a blazer.
New Orleans Saints 365 isn't afraid to touch on the sensitive, hard hitting off the field issues either.
As of right now, I cannot name all of the New Orleans Saints draft picks for year of 2008. But I will say that it seems like every season, the players who are chosen seem to be getting younger and younger. When I found out that players can be drafted as young as recent high school graduate, I was shocked. NFL fans should not be shocked when they here of football players not upholding their integrity off field, like ex-player Michale Vic. These players are so young, they really do not know what to do with all of the money they are being offered, and all of the money they are now responsible for. Most of these new "professional" players are just kids for crying out loud. And sometimes they act like kids!!
Wow, that is powerful stuff.
After watching a New Orleans Saints half time show, I paid close attention to the New Orleans Saints cheerleaders. One thing I have noticed with watching several football half time shows, is all the cheerleaders seem to look the same. They all have different uniforms of course, but they are all skimpy uniforms. They all have a painted on smile with silky hair that goes to their shoulders at least, big boobs, and a face full of makeup. This must also be part of the uniform. The cheerleaders are usually majority Caucasian females, even though the football team is diverse. Why is that? The Saint's cheerleaders have uniforms that are so reveling that I have to ask myself, "Is this a cheerleading routine, or a burlesque show?" Why do these teams need to sell sex at a football game!!!??? I think these football cheerleaders and giving the active sport of cheerleading a bad rap!
After reading all of this, I just had to do some research and maybe find out who this guy is. Upon examination of his profile, we can see that he is the author of many other various blogs, lending his wide array of knowledge and impressive writing style to topics that include:
- Reality TV
- Children's toys
- Toddler's toys
- Eyewitness security systems
- Home furniture
- Cash loans
- and my personal favorite...bubble baths.
Yes, thats right, an entire blog dedicated to baths, bubbles and the delightful combination of the two. I highly suggest giving a quick read of Bath 747.
With the training camp so close and the 2008 season almost upon us, I will leave you with NewOrleansSaints365 prediction for the Saints this season.
Maybe, they could even go to the super bowl and win it all. I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled off a perfect season. They definitely have the potential.
Dream with us, won't you?
I hope you have enjoyed this as much as I did. All of this was done in good fun and I really don't mean to insult or hurt feelings. I only hope that there aren't other uninformed Saints fans out there who are using this blog as their sole source of information.
